Calendar 2017

by Buddy on October 27, 2016

New Calendar Alert
Good news.
Anne finished the 2017 Anne Made Calendar.
To order one you do have to go to the Zazzle website which can be a  pain in the butt…
BUT it’s the way we do our calendars now.

I thought I’d show you some of my fav paintings from the calendar.
(Never before seen by the general public)

Here’s Beth and her two cats…
Harry and Clara.
Our neighbors.
When Beth is out of town I go down and check up on these two hairy beasts.
I make sure they’re getting enough to eat.

Another painting from the new calendar.
It’s Cuthbert.
He loves a good box as you can see here.

Cuthbert is Pete’s cat.
I might have talked about Cuthbert before.
He’s the blind master of the Young Domain.
Anne wants to write a story about Cuthbert.

Speaking of stories…

Anne’s working on a story she’s calling ‘Dave and the Boys’.

Here they are. A man and his dachshunds…

They go everywhere together…

It’s a new thing she’s trying out.
She’s changing her definition of what a portrait can be.
It can be a little story that Anne illustrates.
With paintings and drawings.
She’s grooving on this new concept.

So that’s all for now.

Glad to touch base with you from time to time.
Anne is the reluctant social net-worker so here I am writing the blog.
Just me- blabblin’ on the blog
It is my blog after all- HAH!

Time to paint a portrait of Daphne…

paintings underway

I’m liking this first stage …
but I wasn’t happy with the seated figure on the left…

So I stood her up and gave her a tasteful and cool outfit. I’m into gray. And I like painting women.

‘Red Skirt’  acrylic on panel 16×24″

 

I love drawing and painting people. I like that I can include an animal but it’s not the focus. Kind of a relief.

Here’s another painting of a woman and it’s kind of a composite of two of Anne’s friends. They both happen to be artists.
It’s about 5 x 5″, acrylic on water color paper. I like it okay but notice how there aren’t any cats in the picture. What up with that?

family portrait

by Buddy on February 27, 2013

Anne painted this for Elaine, for her birthday. Here she is with Lance and of course Sparkle. Lance is the distinguished gentleman on the right and Sparkle is the dog on the left. Elaine is holding one of her little Shakespeare books. Lance is standing in front of one of his baseball paintings. Sparkle just wants a treat.

Anne likes doing this kind of painting. People at home… family portraits… a little slice of life.
